Print raft and skirt together

Recommended Posts

Posted · Print raft and skirt together

I would like to know if its possible to print a skirt and raft in cura as it allows us to choose one of the two but not both.

 

Has anyone tried doing this ? any success.

You can always design (one of) them in CAD, and consider it part of your model. But for printing, using both has no practical meaning as far as I know.

I dont want to add it in CAD, the CAD file should only contain the required design. I face an issue once in a while where because of raft not being printed properly the surface of the print over that portion of the raft gets a bit distorted.  To combat this properly I increased the raft margin which I had decreased earlier. Also added a priming step in start G code, sometimes though the primed filament gets in the way of the print.

 

In simplify 3d we can add a skirt and raft together, and I usually do that. Wanted to know if it was possible in CURA too

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
